understand i'm in washington, d.c., not in haiti. again, the ambassador went on to say how can i comment on things on the ground? if he needs something in the united states, my jurisdiction, i will comment. he went on to say he's not god. our producer said, have you spoke with anyone from the government in haiti? since your last conversation with the producer from the show. the ambassador said, i have no more to tell you. i'm answering no more questions. our producer asked if he had spoken to anyone from his government and he hung up on our producer. no answers there. we headed to the government's temporary command center by the airport and managed to get ahold of the minister of information. take a look. the bodies are just being dumped on the ground. >> which bodies? >> the dead people. >> no, no, no. yes? >> we were at the mass grave. >> generally we collect the bodies because what's happened, we asked people to put the dead bodies near a cemetery or near a church and every day, twice a day we go to collect them. >> you collect them but the company that's collecting them is dumping th
culture of washington, as if he had not been a part of it for the last year. he scolded his own democrats for not behaving like a majority. he also took on republicans on issues. he even took on the supreme court, as john king mentioned, you know, sitting right in front of him. the one question i have coming out of this is what is he going to do on health care? it took 25 minute doors him to get to the issue he spent the last nine months working on f is not dead it is kind of on the side of the road now we don't know where it is. i think it was all but abandoned. >> candy it did seem, he gave no sort of even direction for what he would like to see and, you know, theoretical world, house and senate democrats do, in terms of health care. >> he is often a president who leaves things open to interpretation. and i think this is one of those, because he didn't say here's what i want. i want what's there, pass it now, because the political reality is he is not going to get it. but we saw both a call for bipartisanship and some pretty tough partisanship. we saw any number of things that was on th
our office in washington that she had been buried in a coffin in the cemetery. today we went to the u.s. embassy for answers. do you know we would have been told state side that this particular woman was put in a coffin and buried? >> we don't know where that information came from. from our point here, we don't know the disposition of the remains. the presumption of the family is that the body was taken to a mass grave. that would seem consistent with the way things are done now. >> the mass graves are just outside port-au-prince, two weeks after the quake, we thought we would find them cleaned up, covered over, but it's much worse than that. the dead are still just dumped on the ground. little effort it seems has been made to actually bury them. american or haitian or whatever the nationality, this is not how anyone expected their dead to be treated. this is now how anyone wants their loved one's life to end. the scene at the mass graves today was simply shocking, we expected after two weeks that the haitian government which has been bringing bodies out there would have at least made
intelligence indicated there was a group of somalis who intended to come to washington to detonate explosives on the national mall where the president of the united states, of course, would be taking the oath of office on january 20th and addressing the world with his inaugural address. they took it quite seriously in the last 48 to 72 hours before the inauguration. increasingly they were picking up signs that made them feel like this was a serious and possible threat. they met repeatedly with each other. old team, the bush team, the new team, the obama team, during this transition period in order to figure out what to do about it. it was a moment of quiet tension there for a new president who was just about to take office. >> i understand president obama canceled a rehearsal of the inauguration. when was the president actually briefed? do you know what his reaction was. >> caller: he was kept up to date in the few days leading up to the inauguration. there was one moment in particular we write about in the magazine, the night before the inauguration, his counterterrorism adviser john brennan
'll talk to washington, d.c., school chancellor michelle rhee about her groundbreaking work. if you've had a heart attack caused by a completely blocked artery, another heart attack could be lurking, waiting to strike. a heart attack caused by a clot, one that could be fatal. but plavix helps save lives. plavix taken with other heart medicines, goes beyond what other heart medicines do alone, to provide greater protection against heart attack or stroke and even death by helping to keep blood platelets from sticking together and forming clots. ask your doctor about plavix. protection that helps save lives. people with stomach ulcers or other conditions that cause bleeding should not use plavix. taking plavix alone or with some other medicines including aspirin may increase bleeding risk, so tell your doctor when planning surgery. certain genetic factors and some medicines, such as prilosec, may affect how plavix works. tell your doctor all the medicines you take, including aspirin, especially if you've had a stroke. if fever, unexplained weakness or confusion develops, tell your doctor prom

fired for -- for failing to connect the dots? >> well, i think a number of people in washington have been speculating mr. lighter who runs the national counterterrorism center might well lose his job over this. i was told today that he was safe. that subjects that there may not be a lot of firings on this whole thing. i didn't have the sense in talking to people today that that was coming. instead, what i -- i also asked about a question paul begala raised on this program last night with you, anderson, was the president going to take any responsibility here? after all earthquake didn't insert himself into that list yesterday about taking personal responsibility. and i was told that he did in the meeting yesterday say the buck stops here in affect, i take responsibility and that he would publicly take responsibility. so, this brennan report that's coming out tomorrow may be accompanied by a statement by the president saying, ultimately at the end of the day, i'm the responsible officer here. >> anderson that is precisely what i heard on my way over here from a senior administration of
